MEMpax® is an extremely thin, smooth borosilicate glass with real versatility. While it shares similar chemical and physical characteristics to SCHOTT’s world-renowned BOROFLOAT®, it opens up many new areas of potential application thanks to its lower thickness and fire-polished surface.

Slimline features and surface appeal

SCHOTT MEMpax® extends the world’s renowned BOROFLOAT® borosilicate glass thickness portfolio in extremely low thicknesses, from 0.07-0.55 mm. It also benefits from a pristine, fire-polished surface, removing the need for grinding and polishing, and can be used anywhere that extremely thin borosilicate glasses are required, such as MEMS and biotechnology applications.

Outstandingly versatile

A combination of unique thicknesses and outstanding properties expand the potential of MEMpax®. Its CTE (coefficient of thermal expansion) corresponds to a silicon wafer, which makes it ideal for wafer applications in anodic and other bonding processes. Low autofluorescence, high UV transmission, and electrically non-conductive properties further widen its potential.

We are certified

We are both ISO 9001 and 14001 certified. The production of MEMpax® is constantly monitored at all stages and all our glass is subjected to stringent quality inspection before shipping. It also complies with EU-RoHS and EU-REACH standards.
